• Hello Fabrik Community

    Fabrik is now in the hands of the development team that brought you Fabrik for Joomla 4. We have recently transitioned the Fabrik site over to a new server and are busy trying to clean it up. We have upgraded the site to Joomla 4 and are running the latest version of Fabrik 4. We have also upgraded the Xenforo forum software to the latest version. Many of the widgets you might have been used to on the forum are no longer operational, many abandoned by the developers. We hope to bring back some of the important ones as we have time.

    Exciting times to be sure.

    The Fabrik 4.0 Official release is now available. In addition, the Fabrik codebase is now available in a public repository. See the notices about these in the announcements section

    We wish to shout out a very big Thank You to all of you who have made donations. They have really helped. But we can always use more...wink..wink..

    Also a big Thank You to those of you who have been assisting others in the forum. This takes a very big burden off of us as we work on bugs, the website and the future of Fabrik.

    • how to create menu items

    Menu -> select menu -> add item

    Menu item type -> select






    Create a Form Menu Item​


    • Fabrik Form - select the form you wish to show

    • Row id - The table row to show in the form - if the view is set to view form.
      Set to -1 to replace with the user's id
      Set to -2 to load the last inserted record
    • Key name - Column name to use with Row id, leave blank to use primary key (only set this if you know what you are doing!).
      If row id set to -1 then set this column to the name of the form's user id element to prepopulate Forms with the users record
    • Show random records - Setting this to yes will randomly display a record. Note pre-filters are still applied
    • Extra Query String - Optionally specify additional query string to be used for this menu item, like
      &mytable___foo=123&mytable___bar=456, for instance to preset form variables. This string will be url endcoded for you.



    • Fabrik List - select the list you wish to show

    • Reload calculations - when the link is clicked, should Fabrik reload the list calculations (yes) or use the cached calculations (no)
    • Template - which list template to use. Will override the list's template option. If -Use Default - selected then will use the list's template.
    • Reset filters
      • Yes - will remove any user selected filters from the list (prefilters are still applied)
      • No - will use any filters previously selected by the user
    • Show in list - opens a modal window where you can state which Elements to show in the list. If used, this overrides the element's own 'show in list option'
    • Pre-filters - opens a modal window where you can assign prefilters. There prefilters override any prefilter defined in the list
    • Rows per page - set the default number of records to show per page.
